Halloween: The word itself evokes images of grinning jack-o-lanterns, costumed trick-or-treaters and otherworldly creatures drifting through the night.

In celebration of this spooky holiday, scholars throughout The University of Texas at Austin reveal their favorite spine-tingling tales of horror. Whether it's apparitions roaming the English countryside, the nightmarish mind of a madman or the mad-capped antics of mischievous ghosts, these literary works are perfect for that one night of the year when the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest.

Sleeping with the lights on this week? Don't forget to check under the bed.
